  • Personalised experience

    A single, cloud-hosted voice profile allows clinicians to dictate into their EHR from anywhere, any device, and any care setting. By providing clinicians greater flexibility and portability in choosing appropriate workflows and devices, 3M Fluency Direct frees up more time for patient care.

  • Unmatched accuracy

    At the core of 3M Fluency Direct’s game-changing, out-of-the-gate accuracy is the power of speech understanding. This proprietary technology combines best-in-breed speech recognition solutions with powerful natural language understanding (NLU), allows clinicians to speak in conversational tones, and improves accuracy over time. NLU enables the creation of rich documents that encapsulate both narrative and encoded information, as well as dictation directly into any application.

Expertise with 3M Fluency Direct and more than 200 EMRs and EHRs facilitates at-the-elbow coaching and system customisation to further enhance the experience.
